Bobby Womack (1944-2014)

For Me, one of the greatest singer of the ages. His grit, gut and soul is truly astounding. He expresses the feeling tones that match well with the soul and spirit I think should be within the passion of singing.

Truly simply just "REAL" !!!!!
I like others such as Bill Withers, Marvin Gay and various others. Bobby Womack talks about life in the true real sense. He has the naturalness of a Ray Charles, and his selection of instrumental magic which sets the background and fills in the landscape is truly beautiful.

There will be no more to be as Bobby Womack.

For those who are not familiar with him, I would say, give yourself such a delightful treat and listen to some of his songs.

I'm at the moment listening to "SOMEDAY WE'LL ALL BE FREE"

I've been playing his songs over and over as he touches and talks about so much of life, its realism, its loves, its passions, its challenges and its wonderful and wondrous marvels of all that makes up living.

I can speak of the greatness, but it would take a vast amount of writing to truly speak of the depth and fullness of what is within the songs of Bobby Womack.

What a loss but he left such a legacy of truly life force expressions in his music and songs.

Take a listen and open your heart and mind, and you will find that Bobby, will touch you deeply and gently with much passion within the feeling of your inner self.

A song everyone will understand
Bobby Womack - "If You Think You're Lonely Now"

True Classic
Bobby Womack - "That's the way I feel about cha"
Bobby Womack - " A Woman's gotta have it"
Bobby Womack - "Harry Hippie"
Bobby Womack - " I'm Looking for a Love"
Bobby Womack - "Where do we go from here"
Bobby Womack - " I Can Understand It.
Bobby Womack - "Across 110th St."
Bobby Womack - "That's the way I feel about cha"

Enjoy these songs, it will open the heart and mind... of all that loves wonders instilled within its confines.

"Across 110th Street" is my favorite. I grew up listening to his music. Legendary performer who will surely be missed.
